cité des sciences

maison de l'ingénieur

The “Maison de l’Ingénieur” (House of Engineering) will house the engineering research units. Its construction concept refers to the city as a living environment and the University as a place of knowledge. The building consists of two parallel elements arranged on top of each other: a base for teaching and an upper part dedicated to research. This monolithic block is one of a series of buildings that display a degree of restraint in their volumetric expression, yet each revealing a specific element of the façade. In terms of urban planning, this construction at the entrance of the site sets the lines of perspective along the main roads and opposite University Square.
